Fall is the perfect time for crafting! It’s not too hot and not too cold, so you can just sit and enjoy making something cute without worrying about the weather! A great way to relax with crafting during the fall is to make a fall button craft! I’ve made several button crafts this year, and I enjoy making them more and more with each new one! They’re an inexpensive and relaxing activity, and there are so many opportunities for creativity! If you’re looking for a fun way to spend a fall day, you have to try making this Easy Ombre Pumpkin Button Craft!
Because button crafts are so easy to make, they’re great crafts to make with friends or family, especially kids! You don’t have to think too hard while working on them, so it gives you a great chance to just enjoy the day and chat! I made my ombre pumpkin button craft on a pallet board and made three pumpkins, but another cute alternative would be to just make one or two pumpkins glued onto paper and put in a frame (in front of the frame’s glass).
Easy Ombre Pumpkin Button Craft
Buttons – in at least three shades of orange and green. I prefer Favorite Findings brand buttons, usually available at most craft stores and Walmart.
Pallet Board (mine measures 3.5″ x 14″)
Sanding Block (if necessary)
Circle Template (2″ plastic cap was used)
1. If necessary, lightly sand your pallet board to remove any rough edges and cut “fuzzies.”
2. Separate your buttons into your lightest to darkest colors.
3. With a pencil, lightly draw a pumpkin shape at the top and bottom of your pallet board, then add one in the middle, evenly spacing them apart.
The end result is an adorable DIY fall pumpkin decoration that will look beautiful displayed in your home!
